and 30 PIMs.
Chase Phelps was also listed as U.S High School
West “C Skater.” The Left-winger, playing at Shattuck-St. Mary’s Prep in
Minnesota last season, had 60 points in 56 games with the team (23G, 37A).
Phelps, a listed Hurricanes player, played for team U.S.A at the U-18 Ivan
Hlinka Memorial tournament in August, where the team claimed the Silver
Players on the CSS list are ranked on an “A” to “C”
hierarchy in terms of the three rounds in the NHL draft. The players compromised
on the list are determined by Central Scouting at having a chance to hear their
name called out at some point during the two-day 2014 NHL draft, which will be
held at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA June 27-28.
